Put Facebook to Work
You may not care about how closely tied others’ personal and work lives have become. You may not judge others’ personal choices. But you can’t control how others may judge you. Whether you like it or not, people are going to judge you based upon your public Facebook page. You are out there and exposed. In the future, you may be even more exposed, since Facebook’s privacy practices are ever-changing.
The content of your Facebook posts will be judged by others and so will be the quantity. Too much posting suggests that you’re avoiding work. How might others interpret your posts and the frequency of your posts?
Your Facebook page should represent you and your brand well. Does it?
Make Facebook work for you. Clean up your page so that others want to work with you (not feel like they know too much information about your personal life), and use Facebook to network. Here are two sources that are helpful for Facebook beginners: one from American Majority and another from Squidoo. And here’s one that will help you turn Facebook into an effective networking tool.
